Farewell, Mr. D, and hello Mr. Strauch.

Sad news this week - on Monday morning when I went to check on the bunnies, I found Mr. D lying in the pen looking like he was sleeping. But when he didn't move at the sound of the door opening, I realised we had lost him, for no discernible reason :( I had checked on the bunnies before I went to bed only 6 hours before, and Mr. D had been his usual cheeky self, bouncing around and putting his little paws up on the wire of the pen to ask me where his treat was (he knew that I would give the bunnies a treat every night when I checked them on my way to bed). So it was quite a shock and very upsetting to find him dead, with no clue as to what happened - he just looked as if he had sprawled on the floor in his usual corner and was having a snooze :(

Bunnies, dyeing and samples, oh my!

This week's update is heavy on pictures and light on goodies for sale, as I have had a chaotic week with Aspen and trying to very slowly assimilate her into the household - she started out in a separate pen of her own, in my living room so that the other bunnies wouldn't try to fight with her or anything:

Today we welcome our new furbaby, Aspen :) She is another rescue angora, and has quite a sad tale - she was rescued from a breeder after being made to have several litters of kits while she was still very young, and as a consequence has never really been properly socialised with either people, or other bunnies.

Summer is a comin'.....

...and so is bunny haircut time! Chuubi did NOT approve of this haircut in the least, well until we got home anyway! Then she promptly flattened herself against my hardwood floor and stayed there for quite a while enjoying the cool after a few days of high temperatures and humidity. I was curious to see how much fluff Chuubi actually had, so I weighed it - she wasn't even in full coat, and had a whopping 96g of wool! Almost as good as her buddy Mr D, who had his haircut last week and after all the matts were removed, provided a full 100g of the most gorgeously soft chocolate fluff, despite also not being in full coat. I am going to be sneezing angora "snow" for at least a week now after their haircuts lol, and I can tell that if they keep growing fluff at the rate they are now, I will pretty soon be swamped in angora fibre! :D
